Thank you for joining me today in quite a gloomy day in Melbourne. They say it’s going to get sunnier this week so summer is on the way. Nothing like some crafting to keep the mood cheery. I’ve got some sweet florals to share with you for my scrapbook page for the Ink & Share Scrapbook Monochromatic Blog Hop.
I chose the Hand Penned Memories & More Card Pack to create my page in shades of green. When Stampin’ Up! provide us the products, why not use it? It sure makes it much easier. To give you an idea how much easier it is let me explain that I am not a scrapbooker but I love taking part in challenges that get me to stretch myself and learn new things. So here I am scrapbooking! Stampin’ Up! products make it easy to create and try things which you normally don’t do.
I added the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper – Beautifully Penned which coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals bundle. You can earn this paper free with a $90 order and there are several other options as well.
On a Soft Sea Foam page, I mounted all my elements. A 20cm square of Beautifully Penned DSP was layered on a 20.6cm square of Soft Sea Foam cardstock which a coloured in Just Jade around the edges with a Blending Brush. I use this technique quite often to give muted colours. In this case I was able to match the colouring on the Memories & More Cards.
The flowers in the Memories & More cards looked like Pool Party so to keep in the monochromatic theme, I touched them up with a Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.
Some of the cards were cut apart and mounted on Soft Sea Foam cardstock (coloured as mentioned before) so I could create a different layout for my page.
For a focal element, I stamped a set of flowers from the Hand Penned stamp set and coloured with a mix of Mint Macaron, Just Jade and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
The gems were also coloured with Light Just Jade and Light Old Olive to coordinate with the rest of the page.
All products that I have used to create this scrapbook page are listed at the bottom of this post.
